Another thing we've been hard at work on ever since we moved in is establishing some garden beds. There was no real landscaping here at all, and everything was overgrown. Each year we've managed to grow some sort of food, last year providing the biggest haul so far. We actually got to do some canning! This year we are trying our hand at seed starting. There are flowers and veggies in there. We have three beds that need attention. There are bushes to pull, branches to trim, and plants to move. Hopefully, we'll see a bigger haul this year.

I love Kiley's face!
We've been cooking a lot of food from scratch here, and Harmony is really growing in her abilities in the kitchen. She has been working on perfecting her recipe for Gluten Free Chocoloate Chip Cookies for entry in the 4-H Fair this July. She's getting pretty good and can now follow the recipe all on her own. We're still working on completely understanding measurement, but she does it all on her own asking questions as she goes along. We enjoy being her tasters very much! Every family should bake chocolate chip cookies once a week!

We love to hear what others are doing in their homeschool. What have you been up to? What are your plans for the summer months? Do share!
